Yes, and some of us are still steamed at them about it.  I had been a member
for years.

The situation was not well handled -- they didn't even notify overseas
members that they were stopping the seed offer; it just didn't come any
more.  Combine that with price increases, and overseas membership in the
society went from being a reasonable expense to an incredibly costly way to
get a magazine delivered months late.
